About Roanoke River Blueway

Guiding the Blueway: Roanoke's River

The Roanoke River Blueway covers 45 miles in Virginia’s Blue Ridge, featuring activities like canoeing and kayaking. It touches seven localities in the upper watershed, including:

City of Roanoke
City of Salem
Montgomery County
Roanoke County
Bedford County
Franklin County
Town of Vinton

The heart of this endeavor is the Roanoke River Blueway Committee, a coalition of local governments and agencies dedicated to the stewardship and promotion of the Blueway.
